Humpday Links for January 2

One thing that won’t be going away in 2013 is Humpday Links, because, a) I’m always finding cool/disturbing/cool stuff on the internets I want to share, and b) I’m lazy.  So love ’em or hate ’em, here are your first Humpday Links of the year!

– I need a pair of these (keep it clean, you!) to light up my gaming room.

– Contrary to the stereotypes this video asks the important question, can D&D make you more confident and successful.  I think yes, but you decide.

– Apparently Sony and Universal reaaaally wanted to up their view counts on YouTube, and YouTube had to take away 2 billion fake ones.  Want view counts?  Here’s an idea: post things people want to see.

– Ocean Liner crashed on your beach?  Here’s some ideas on what to do with it.

– For my fellow Whovians: Once again, somebody made something that has me shouting, “Shut up and take my money!” I give you, a model TARDIS that is bigger on the inside.

– Also for the Whovians: If you were smacking a Dalek pinata, what else would you use as a blindfold?  Also, I don’t want to brag (okay, just a little), but I’m the proud owner of that scarf

– It is once again time for Paizo’s RPG Superstar.  This time, the first round is voted on by the public.  See how it’s going and cast your vote!

– Jenny Breedin over at The Devil’s Panties pretty much sums up my attitude to New Year’s Eve.  No I just need the footy pajamas…

– Get ready Tolkien fans, we’re gonna bust this joint up!

– For my Shadowrun gaming chummers, 2013 is officially The Year of Shadowrun!

xkcd demonstrates why I never really make New Year’s resolutions.

– For any of my readers with babies, or who know people that have freshly spawned, Seams Geeky has you covered in the nerdy environmentally-friendly diaper department.

– And finally, ever had a great idea for a nerdy shirt you know would sell? Can’t be arsed to produce it yourself? Teespring has you covered.

That’s it, that’s all!  As usual, feel free to share a link in the comments.  Until next time, happy internetting!

Humpday Links for July 20th

Welcome to a new permanent feature for my blog, the Humpday Links.  Everyone can use a distraction midway through the week to help them make it to the weekend.  So every Wednesday I’ll provide a cavalcade of links for your viewing pleasure.  And if you want to share some links in the comments, please do!

In the mean time, on with the links!

– This is an important thing for geeks everywhere to remember: Words Hurt.

– Even though Disney dropped “of Mars” from the title for their own inscrutable reasons, John Carter looks pretty darn good!

– Google+ is still in its infancy, but there is already an in-crowd for gamers.  Here are the 20 Gamers to Follow on Google+.

– With 19 days to go in the Kickstarter, Womanthology has already blown away its goal.  Still plenty of time to show your support, and they have something special planned if they make it to $100,000.

– Do you have problems staying on top of your email?  Then maybe you should read and sign the Email Charter.

– This one is for the Doctor Who fans that love Shakespeare: David Tennant and Catherine Tate sing Sigh No More from Much Ado About Nothing.

– This is a great article discussing the limitations of women in Fantasy.  I highly recommend it.

– Apparently Stormtroopers compensate for being the worst shots in the Star Wars universe, by doing super awesome charity work.  This Stormtrooper is walking across Australia in his armour.

– Are you heading to San Diego Comic Con this weekend?  Looking for love while you’re there?  Why not play some bingo while you look?

– The web-comic Loaded Dice is back, for all your RPG comic nerdery needs.
